to happen today until of all people michele bachmann, who had missed the first roll call and a woman by the name of marsha blackburn who had a bloody nose came back into the chamber and were able to cast votes in favor of speaker boehner saving him from the embarrassment of being the second person since 1913 to go a second ballot. make no mistakes about it, a lot of disenfranchised and angry conservative members of the house republican conference spoke out today. they made a symbolic protest. it got close to being a pretty huge story. certainly significant, but moving forward you will see a different speaker boehner, one who very much will adhere to the most conservative part of his conference because, quite frankly, politically right now he needs to. >> luke, how desperate must things be for an individual like speaker john boehner to have to rely on an individual like michele bachmann? >> reporter: it's a lot different than what we saw when he first came in here. there has been protests against a leader before. in 2010 it wasn't as significant but 20 democrats voted against nancy pe

. you see in this congress michele bachmann and michele bachmann one of these -- wannabe's. there are fights about redistricting. >> use of the one strength the president obama, his rhetorical skill, is not sufficient. >> it has not been used at the scale necessary in this time of crisis. america is in a crossroads. this is a moment comparable to coming out of the great depression. this was a moment coming out of the financial crisis when tectonic shifts are under way in this country. hope is not a policy. policy is a wonky word. hope needs a story, a narrative. here is what is going on in this country. president obama now is speaking more forcefully about what he wants to do it and against smoking out those who are obstructing. this is really wonky. anyway, i think one of the most exciting things are the movements of our times. i closed this book out before occupy. i wrote about wisconsin. our correspondent was there for 57 days. that was about occupying the state house. occupy has become a brand. it has also become e ncampments. soon it will need to be more than a space

're not supposed to say that. bill march called sarah palin every name in the book, michele bachmann every name, david letterman has done it. my favorite, chris matthews did it again and again and again, insulting women. mark called michele bachmann mentally retarded. letterman attacked palin's daughter. she was 14, give me a break. nothing, nothing ever happened. it is profound hypocrisy. that's a theme in the book, how incredibly hypocritical the left has been in ripping this country apart. claiming to be the great champions and defender of women. yet, they'll only defend liberal women and their policies are systematically wreaking havoc on the very groups they claim to be champ uponning. women is a perfect example. highest poverty rate in 17 years as a result of the absurd policies of the administration, the job-killing policies of this administration. the extreme poverty rate for women is at an all time high. that means those women in america living below after the poverty line, we should not have women living below half the poverty line in the country, but 7.5 million of them are. more peo

lobbyist. barney frank talk about michele bachmann. he also called out newt gingrich and said he held him responsible for the demonization of opponents that has contributed to the atmosphere we live in today. i do think he came into the house. he slashed all of the caucasus and civility. we are seeing this. this is a man who a few days ago talked about education reform in the context of firing the janitors in schools and putting the kids to work. a lot of the media called that unconventional. [laughter] let's repeal child labor laws that we fought hard for in this country. bring in dickens to chronicle it. i do think there is the cruelty amidst the reality show debates we have been subjected to. who is running this, entertainment or news? there is a cruelty when people cheer that someone dies without health care or bbo a soldier that dies in iraq. >> i am joking about herman cain. he is a guy who cannot hide the truth well. that makes me more comfortable with the idea that i know who he is about so i can make a decision. >> are you talking about the women coming forward or the fact that h

. early on, there were so many time, he could have just turned, mike barnicle, to michele bachmann, who said something outrageous and go, wait a second. i'm a conservative. are you kidding me? or to herman cain or when sarah palin was running around calling barack obama a socialist, bordering on a communist and all these other things that were going on. crazy never wins but we learned another thing. you better stand up to crazy if you want to win in bucks county, pennsylvania, if you want to win in the i-4 corridor or win in the suburbs of ohio and if you want to win in the place where elections are actually won! >> you know, i would ask you, john heilemann, as a keen obser observer of the electoral scene was not the dye cast for mitt romney and perhaps the rest of the year in terms of republican politics on the evening when all of the 10 candidates on stage were asked to raise their hands if they were in favor of a dollar raise in revenue and $10 in budget cuts? not one raised his or her hand. that was the definition of crazy right there. >> a vivid illustration. you think about mitt r

a brutal and horrible crime, stop. enough said. >> exactly. >> michele bachmann, introduced her first bill. tweeting last week on the bill is to "repeal obama care in its xwir entirety." is the last election resonating at all with congressman bachmann? >> this is congresswoman bachmann advancing her views in a way that will go absolutely no where. zero prospect that will happen. but, again, when you have people in districts who are reflecting the most extreme elements in their own party, because primaries are where they face the greatest potential risk, this is what you get. and, you know, michele bachmann made her name as somebody on the right wing of the republican party who was especially aggressive and in your face to democrats and to president obama in particular, she certainly wants to maintain that reputation, and she is not going to get anywhere legislatively with this, but this doesn't -- given who she, what her identity is, probably doesn't hurt her that much politically. >> overall, john, is this a sign that we're off to a certain kind of start? did the 113th congress be as unpr

? apparently by picking up right where they left off as michele bachmann proudly boasted on twitter, quote, she introduced the first bill of the 113th congress to repeal obama care in its entirety. you might recall republicans have tried at least 33 times before this. those are efforts that have no chance of passing since the senate is controlled by the democrats and the very tow pen wielding president sun likely to repeal his own health care bill. congresswoman bachmann is not alone picking up on old fights. in the first few dates of the new congress republicans have tried to reengage in fights over anchor babies, defunding planned parenthood and passing a personhood bill. in other words, here we go again. michael steele is the former chair of the republican national committee and an msnbc political analyst and bob shrum is a democratic strategist. let's look at this one. here is michele bachmann who might be fighting to repeat obama care but john boehner concedes it's a losing battle. in an interview with abc after the election the speaker said the election settled the election of obama care.
